Update All Changelog Summary

As a curious addon consumer, I like to keep up on what changes are being made when my addons are updated. This is generally not an issue as each addon has a Changelog section in the Addon Display Page; but in the case when multiple addons have pending updates the flow is quite tedious.


I am proposing the following:

When using the Update All Feature a modal pops up displaying name of each addon being updated and the latest entry in the Changelog for that addon.


Bonus points for any of the following:

  • Configurable App settings

    • Toggle enable

    • Length cutoff for overly long entries

    • Toggle verbosity

      • Latest change only

      • Changes between previous version and newest

      • Full changelog

        • I have no idea why anyone would want this...

    • Ability to exclude addons from popup

      • Perhaps still show in the popup but mention that it is excluded

  • Allow addon authors to provide a Change Summary that is separate from the Changelog for the purpose of this modal


Example popup

While your addons are being updated check out the changes

Bagnon

10.1.4
  • Sorting now running on the new core, which concludes the transition to this new more efficient system.

  • Improvements to local sorting:

    • Equipment saved as part of sets is still sorted before the rest of the equipment, but now right before it, without other categories of items inbetween.

    • Fixed issue making sorting not target just the selected guild bank tab.

Bird Facts

v1.6 (2023-08-02)

Full Changelog Previous Releases

  • Tweaked Auto-fact
    -Updated the Auto Fact output to auto output to certain channels
    -Tweaked the options menu so it's prettier :)

    Fwiw, this seems a lot more involved than the merged idea: https://curseforge-ideas.overwolf.com/ideas/CF-I-5765 which is just fixing it to show the correct changelog in the UI. Seems a bit rude to merge the idea and tie it to this major overhaul.
